Island of O'ahu.
The shot of the little girl standing in front of the cane fire waving is a classic vacation shot.
Cane burning is a big issue here on Maui currently (2012). People are getting tired of it and the plantation, HC&S an A&B subsidiary, does not have the political clout it used to have. The Hawaii sugar industry went away because the companies, primarily C Brewer sold the technology around the world and basically sold out the people of Hawaii.

Burn baby burn!
Fun film which could almost be a ephemeral film on how Sugar canes are harvested. First, they burn them, then they pack them up, to the mill.. etc etc. Interesting to watch, as I had no idea. Really.
